Man I love the dead,

I got an academic counselor at my work (Jerry Castillo, says he's mistaken for jerry garcia a lot, just by name, not appearance) to listen to 8/27/72 dark star, cuz he said he likes psychedelic music

anyhoo, what are your favourite jerry solos?

I like the bendy ones where he makes my spine tingle.

This happened particularly so in the 9/11/73 China>rider, and the half step..

What are your guys? The ones that are just obviously creativity flowing out,

or what things did the dead do where they improvised and supposedly 'fucked up' but it totally worked?

One example for me that I recently found is the solo right before the "Flight of the sea bird(S?),scattered like lost words" Jerry goes one step too high on the guitar, and makes it sound super, super gnarly, and he goes back into the regular key and then they say the "flight of the seabird thing"... it's in the 10-27-91 show


oh yeah and Uncle Sid is coming to town

I can't think of any shows off the top of my head, but I love a good Let it Grow. Jerry can get that tingling-sensation feeling going when it's just right.

max,

i'm actually not sure how to respond... i had hoped i was missing out on some in-joke or something along those lines. please be careful, bite your tongue and don't rock the boat. 60-120 days is NOT a slap on the wrist! whatever you've done in the past - don't fucking do it again man! learn form this! smarten up! when you post your thread, be sure to include the mailing address of the institution, and we'll be sure to keep you inendated with music and well wishes.

peace to you my young friend. try and turn this into a positive... maybe a journal?

ian

oh man I could not even tell you, my outlook on life has changed drastically. Recently I saw "what the bleep do we know" and "the secret" and all i see is the positive. In jail I will have time to think, rethink and reprioritize what i want in life, work out a lot, eat a consistent diet, etc..

I am happy to go man, i just wish it wasn't inhibiting my social and academic life. once I am out I will attack life with a peaceful VENGEANCE ha..

Good on ya Grasshopper! I'm sure there are newer facilities, but from what I know I sure hope you get Theo Lacy! A whole hell of a lot better than OCJ... Better food, and you cn go outside and play baseball and basketball and stuff! Just be cool, be real, and mind your own business... You'll be OK!

7-7-89 scarlet Begonias > Fire on the Mountain- hard to single one out- the entire lead in the second break to the transition is a musical, lyrical poem invented on the spot (true of all the great scarlets)

7-19-90 deer creek- Jackstraw - the end solo- inventive and comes out of nowhere

so so many- more later

5-1-81 LIG terrific- just listened to it.

The solo in 'I shall be released' from the JGB 1991 Live CDs
always leaves me gasping for breath at the end.

HALF STEP 11/6/77, Binghampton, NY

What Jerry does in the jam leading up to the "across the Rio Grande-O" chorus AND the jam that follows that to the end of the song remains one of the most mind-blowingly intense pieces of guitar mastery ever recorded or heard by human ears.

As I've mentioned, my all-time favorite Garcia solo is in Friend of the Devil at my first show, 10/10/76:

Nothing comes to mind as far as happy accidents are concerned.

Most importantly, though, as you've already learned, you've got a lot of support here, Max. I don't know if you've ever spent any time in lockup, but it is an enormously unqualified fucked-up drag! Your attitude about it seems to be positive and accepting, and by no means would I suggest for you to drop that because it can only serve to help you through the ordeal. No one can stop time from passing, and this shall pass, as well. But I'll be straight with you, man: jail is a horrible place-watch your back and be very careful who you trust in there.
